I love you dad by blondey

I love you dad

Every moment we had

I love you dad

No dad is perfect I know

And great love you did show

Thank you Dad

You did the best you could..

As any father should

Thank you Dad

I'm sure days were tough

And times were often rough

With responsibility and sacrifice-

With 10 Children and a wife!

Daddy, I love you

Everyone loves their dad

Whether he made them mad or glad

These feelings...must be had

As you prepare to leave this world, dad

I know you're sort of reluctant to go..

But you will always know

I love you, I told you so


Your tenderness came thru

As your age grew and grew

I love to see you smile

Though in pain all the while

Age did you well, dad

You became someone I could really talk to..

It was a priviledge dad

It really was

I don't know how to say goodbye dad

I don't think anyone really does, Dad

But promise me this

That you'll send me a kiss

When you arrive

In Heaven,

Blow me a kiss..

And I'll be glad!

I'm SO sorry about your daddy - i'm here if you ever need to talk to someone other than family..

i wonder what it's like to have such a big family - i have next to none..

it is lonely..

Thanks James,

I really was glad I was able to spend a lot of time with my dad during his illness and he became so much easier to talk to, and mellowed out.
